Zoloft doesn't do a thing for me. My psychiatrist of 14 years seems to have given up on me. He spent my last session telling me how I needed a hobby then went on for 20 minutes about his hobby? I was so upset! Over a week after that appointment my depression got even worse. It's been bad but it is really bad now. I'm barely functioning. I can barely get out of bed if it weren't for my kids I wouldn't do anything but lay in bed. While they are at school I sleep. When they get home I'm irritable and have a hard time playing with them and doing homework with them. By time 7pm rolls around I have no patience. I hate the way I feel and I hate how I'm most likely affecting my children. But my doctor's answer was to get a hobby. So I called him recently and told him I need something else. So he added Abilify (which I haven't filled it yet cause it's so so expensive!). I don't know whether to give it a shot or not. Since the Zoloft works do I try the Abilify or do I need to get a whole new med? I'm so lost and so sick of feeling like this.
The abilify is supposed to help when added to an antidepressant. There is help to pay for it if you want that. I know, I'd be hard put to pay what they are asking for it without help. Its more then my rent, lol..Here is the site for assistance. There is a coupon for the first fill free, then assistance after that. addabilify.com/patient-assistance/abilify-savings. You'll have to copy and paste it, since we can't give you actual links.
